Asked by Mar 16, 2012 at 04:16 PM about the 1993 Ford Thunderbird LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok I'm hearing a kinda bad clunk ratel type of noise coming from the rear of my 93 TBird. I want to say its coming
from both sides but I mainly hear it on the passenger side. I'm thinking it could be the sway bar, strut, or maybe my
drum brakes makeing a noise or something. And its when I go over bumps ovieusly.

if by jump test you meen you bounced the rear end of your car then it is most likely a broken coil spring. im almost positive from your description.
